Nice edit

Haven't had a real chance to get on it, trying to do some AFR checks, and it was raining out. Plus traffic and there seemed to be an abnormal amount of Amish bikers out this evening.

That looks like two completely different colors on the Lancer. It's hard to tell which color it actually is. But it looks like a good paint job.

The parking brake cable just has one or two (depending on year) bolts that attach it to the rear trailing arm.

Oh, that's funny. Two German car companies trying to claim the same race track name for a paint color.

Maybe we are not talking about the same thing. Are you guys just talking about how the e-brake cable fastens to the rear trailing arm to keep it from hanging down?
